Tigers sweep the Rabbits in Homecoming match
With Springfield’s November 2 match against Cedar Mountain and November 5 match against Buffalo Lake-Hector Stewart both postponed, the Tigers hosted Wabasso Thursday, earning a second win over the Rabbits in a clean sweep, 3-0. The win put their overall record at 4-4.
The Tigers took the first set 25-18, the second 25-14 and closed out the Rabbits 25-22 in the third set.
“I thought, in the first two sets, we came out really hard. Good three-set victory for us tonight. Wabasso jumping in and helping us out to get a match for Homecoming was good,” Head Coach Tiffany Pierson commented.
Jaeli Richert went 17-of-18 serving with five aces. She also led the team with 10 set assists. Cylee Graff led the offense with eight kills, while Courtney Wendt and Brooklyn Sturm each had five.
Wendt led the defense with four blocks, while also tying for a team high seven digs with Maddy Digmann. Wendt also earned the honor of being named Springfield’s homecoming queen on Monday.
“I thought both Cylee (Graff) and Courtney (Wendt) had a good night at the net. Iliana (Tempel) stepped in well tonight. She served well,” the coach said.
